Today, I’m excited to share this Pottery Barn dupe DIY. This faux stone bowl is the perfect decor piece for almost any room in your home.
I absolutely adore the rustic, earthy look of the Pottery Barn version, but I don’t love the high price tag that comes with it. That’s why I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own. And let me tell you, it turned out beautifully!
This project is a no-brainer, since it’s simple enough for anyone to do, and you can use dollar store materials.
I love these home decor DIYs because they look great, and if you like to switch things up frequently, there’s no guilt when you’ve spent so little on them!
Are you ready to get started?
How to Make This Pottery Barn Dupe Faux Stone Bowl
For this project, you will need:
- Glass bowls, one larger and one small. Look for these at Dollar Tree. The small bowls come in a set of four in the kitchen section. You can also check thrift stores, Amazon, or Walmart.
- E6000 glue
- A can of stone-textured spray paint (I used Rust-Oleum’s Stone Creations.)
- Optional: A sealer.
First, clean your bowls thoroughly, and make sure they are completely dry.
Next, put a good amount of the E6000 glue on bottom of the small glass bowl.
Then set the larger glass bowl on top of the smaller bowl. (The upside-down smaller bowl will be the base of the completed bowl.)
Let the glue dry for about an hour. You want to be sure that the two bowls are completely adhered together.
Next, take your bowls outside (or to a well-ventilated area), and shake your can of stone-textured spray paint well. Hold the can about 8-10 inches away from your bowl, and begin spraying in light, even layers.
Be sure to cover the entire bowl, but don’t overload it with paint. You can always add another coat(s) later if needed.
Once the first coat is dry (usually about 20-30 minutes), add additional coats until you achieve your desired look. I did three coats in all.
When your bowl is completely dry and you’re happy with the finish, you can seal it with a clear spray sealer. This will help protect the bowl. This may not be necessary depending on how you plan to use your bowl.
And, that’s it! Your beautiful new stone bowl is ready to be displayed.
I just love how this project turned out! There are lots of ways to use this bowl too. Make it part of a kitchen countertop display, add some faux greenery, and use this bowl to decorate a bedroom, living room, or bookshelf. Use it in your holiday display at Christmastime. There are loads of possibilities!
Not only is this Pottery Barn dupe project a fun and easy way to add some new decor to your home, but it’s a great way to save a little money. After all, who doesn’t want to get that Pottery Barn look for less?
